C'mon People

Jeez, America is such a country of slackjaws. Newt is a globalist,corporatist, Washington insider that will gladly have us waterboarding the entire population of the Middle East that survives the initial 20 carpet bombings. There won't be any dignified means of escaping either as he will be genuflecting over the TSA agent as he/she cavity searches your 6 year old on the way out of the third world hellhole America will become. Obama sucks but Newt is just atrocious

derty ernie

Cain supporters are bailing faster than a one legged man in a butt kicking contest. I mentioned on another blog site that I thought this week and next his real numbers would start to fade.
I figured there were millions like me who were leaning towards him as a possible choice and now have backed away due to the sex scandal.
Yes he still has followers who do not beleive in the acusations and then there are people like me who do. If it was one woman, it would be he said she said but with 4, how many of those can he say are really out to get him?

Alex

SO, things are THAT desperate... Well yes, when it comes to bigotry he´s hard to beat!

C'mon People

Newt is great. He divorces women he marries because his love for the country is so strong. If the USA had female sex organs, NEWT would romance the hell out of her. That is until his NWO bosses created the North American Union and then he would find his love for the new globalist economic bureaucracy IRRESISTIBLE. Then there would be another left broken hearted by the Newtster. His love is that great!

I found this article regarding analyzing voice stress readings to determine whether a person is telling the truth or not:

Nearly 70 law enforcement agencies nationwide use the voice software, including the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

RON PAUL HAS THE POWER OF THE COMMON MAN, THE YOUTH, AND THOSE YEARNING FOR FREEDOM. NO MORE UNDECLARED WAR, NO MORE ENDLESS PRINTING OF MONEY WHICH HAS NO VALUE, NO MORE WAR ON DRUGS, NO MORE STATUS QUO. END THE FED!!!!!! RON PAUL 2012

JohnnyQConservative

I'm good with either Newt or Perry.
Come on November!!!

C'mon People

Just an idea for you viewers out there in TV land. Ron Paul has consistently won straw poll after straw poll and in scientific polling he polls as a top tier candidate. Yet, we see candidates who have not performed half as well in countless polls alloted much more speaking time. Ron Paul was "allowed" 89 seconds of talk time in this last poll. Here's the idea I'd like to float; if Ron Paul's greatest adversary is the Federal Reserve would it be fair to say that the parent companies that own ABC,CBS,NBC,etc that benefited from TARP bailout money provided by the Fed, might be unfairly biased against someone who wants to, bare minimum, audit the most powerful institution in the world?

Obama 2012

These comments from Republicans are all hilarious (whether pro Newt or anti Newt.)

If the Republicans actually end up nominating Newt Gingrich... wow. Just wow. Amazing! This primary has been even more entertaining than I thought it would be. The most ridiculous Presidential field in the history of US politics.

Anti-RINO

This is hilarious!

Look at all the paid shills and drones on here, spamming generalized compliments about Newt, attempting to paint him as some kind of heroic American figure and master of economics.

The funny thing is, Republicans __HATE__ Newt Gingrich's immoral anti-American history, so all you actors/shills out there (you know who you are) should just quit it already, because you're not fooling anybody.

Newt subjected America to NAFTA and the WTO, created the Department of Education, created the Department of Homeland Security, co-sponsored The Fairness Doctrine, shilled for Bill Clinton's gun grabbing laws...

Newt is NOT an American, he's a traitor and a snake. If this guy were a *genius* in economics (as the shills would have us believe), all of America's jobs wouldn't be leaving the country right now.

LOL!!!!

MGAWVA

-In the 1970s, Newt Gingrich voted for the creation of the Department of Education

-Again in the 1970s, Gingrich voted to give communist China “Most Favored Nation” status

-In 1994, Newt Gingrich voted to give $166 million of taxpayer money to a bureaucracy whose job it is to steal taxpayer money: The IRS.

-Gingrich voted to give $13 billion and $31.8 billion in foreign aid in 1994 and 1995 respectively.

-Newt Gingrich was the driving force behind the passage of NAFTA and GATT in the 1990s

-In 2008 Newt Gingrich cozied up to Nancy Pelosi to advocate for Al Gore’s global warming initiatives. (watch on youtube)

-Most recently he called congressman Ryan’s budget “right-wing social engineering”

Think a debate between Obama and Gingrich would be good? Perhaps so. Just remember, if he wins we will have to live with four years of who is really is, not who is pretending to be right now.

David Kinnison

A Cain victory in 2012 is a victory for 40 years.

No one other than Herman Cain will transform the democrats that have been hoodwinked.

If you fast forward to a Cain v Obama election contest...and fast forward again to a Cain victory, this should be self evident.

Ictoanius

Honestly Newt is being setup to be the next front-runner to be torn apart. I hate to sound paranoid but this really appears to be orchestrated. I was saying just the other day "So who's the next candidate to sure to the lead and be tron to shreds by the media?". Romney will be the nominee and Obama will win re-election. Sad (and I hope I'm wrong) but that seems the way things are going.

voidaq

Yaaay!!! American Political Idol was on and the Grinch won!!!

You people make me sad for humanity.

Notasheeple

Newt is a PUKE.......

Scoutkraft

Everybody has baggage. Newt has the intelligence and knowledge to be a real leader. For once can we elect a man who really is knowledgable about government, national and world politics and economic issues and forget about superficial BS like what he looks like and who he slept with. If you cant do that, then go buy a copy of People magazine and DONT VOTE!

SLIMY NEWT

Anyone who votes for this SLIMY,

DEAD BEAT DAD,

DRAFT DODGING Scumbag,

That will say just about ANYTHING to get elected with a track record of being the most corrupt RINO on Earth,

Only shows that the cheerleaders of the GOP are the DUMBEST people on the planet.

Vote for the SLIMY RINO NEWT you fake republicans, you won't beat Obama, I assure you.

Newt Gringrich, he served his wife divorce papers while she was DYING in the hospital so he could run off with his new skank.

Google it, I dare you....

This is what you are going to hear up to 2012 Newt cheerleaders.

NEWT:

Draft Dodging, DEAD BEAT DAD that dumped his DYING WIFE....

joley

At this point, with the country in the condition it is in with national security, job loss/unemployment high/economy etc., I will cast my vote for anyone BUT Obama. He is the most dangerous and corrupt president this country has ever seen. Not to go to the polls and vote against Obama will insure us of our Constitution being disolved, as well as the bill of Rights, our freedoms, liberty etc. Obama has already stepped on the Constitution.

I believe Cain/Gingrich would make an excellent combination and Dr. Paul as head of the Fed. In the primary I would have to say an absolute NO to Romney or Perry. I know they all have baggage = Newt certainly does but better him than Obama.

Brock

This poll is a joke. I am voting for Ron Paul, my family is voting for Ron Paul and everyone I manage to get to listen to him speak is voting for Ron Paul.

We are letting the media get away with way too much in this Country. The debates are rigged, the polling is rigged and we'll find out shortly if the elections are rigged as well...

Ron Paul or SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!

John

Can you RON PAULSIES please leave the board. You bore me.

Scoutkraft

Yeah Vote for the Third party candidate.. Go ahead. It will help reelct Obama. Apparently you guys are too young to remember that voters in 1992 who voted for H Ross Perot put Clinton in Office...

Todd

Gingrich's ride near the top will be the SHORTEST of all the candidates. Romney is obviously going to be the nominee.....

Carlos

PPP is a left wing Polling Company run by Democrats. Take it for what it is.

donald mullaney

Newt G is the man!!! finaly a politican with a set of balls willing to call a spade a spade...

Tommy

Ron Paul 2012... don't be surprised! .. even with only 89 sec of speaking time on this last debate .. its quite obvious they want to keep him quiet .. THEY KNOW HE WILL FLIP THIS WHOLE GOVERNMENT ON ITS HEAD !THE ELITE KNOW THEIR DAYS ARE NUMBERED ONCE HE IS IN OFFICE!!! they are scared to even mention that he is ahead in most of the polls that are taken.. and also more military donations have gone to his campaign than all other candidates combined including Obama!the people are waking up! audit the fed ! then end the fed!!!!!!!! RON PAUL THE CHAMPION OF THE CONSTITUTION!!!!!

RalphE

Gingrich is very intelligent. The debates have shown that he's sharp on the issues. He's also the consumate career politician with an insatiable lust for power. His record shows that he will do or say just about anything in order to gain power. If he thinks that having a nice sit down with Princess Nancy will win him points, Newt is there. If he thinks things are swinging towards global warming, Newt's on board. The man is smart but fundamentally untrustworthy - plus he's a long time member of the GOP establishment. If Newt wins the nomination all we will hear about until election day will be what an SOB he was to divorce his wife while she was undergoing chemo treatments. I like Cain (not because he's black) but because he's NOT a long term DC professional politician. His solutions make sense. He's not perfect - no one is. But given the slick robot Romney or shifting Gingrich, I prefer Cain.

ROUNDS COOKING OFF

The Democrats have this "enemies list" --- denominated in epithets aimed at the people whose wallets they wish to hijack and take up residence inside. You can be a “Racist!” and you can be a “Homophobe!” and you can be a “T-bagger!” --- a homosexual man taking his partner’s scrotum into his mouth. You can be “Selfish!” and you can be a “Wacko!” and you can be a “Hick!” and you can be a “Rube!” and you can be an “Extremist!” You can be a “Right-wing-nut!” and you can be “Mentally Ill” and you can be “Deranged!” and you can be a “Warmonger!” and you can be "Unenlightened!" and you can be a “FatCat!” and you can be a “Nazi!” and you can be a “Fascist!” --- although no one more closely approaches the precise description of “Nazi!” or “Fascist!” than the usual Democrat propagandist --- either official, or self-appointed.

Lies, after all, are the heart and soul and the sword and shield of the Democrat party.

So all you have to do to occupy multiple epithets on the Democrats’ enemies list is to insist that they take their hands off yourself, off your wallet, off your property, off your kids, off your diet, off your healthcare, off your household appliances, off your car, off your bank account, off your weapons of self-defense, off your liberty, and off your freedom of speech. Insist on all these good things - and that qualifies you to be spat upon by nasty, mean-spirited scXm --- by The Friends of All Mankind --- by a gang of lying, thieving, dope-smoking, pill-popping, coke-snorting, sticky-fingered, bloodsxcking, tax-eating, gun-stealing, predatory humanitarian thugs --- by the Democrat party, in other words. No political party in the history of America more profoundly deserves absolute and outright destruction.

Ron Paul got 98 seconds too much time last night. You contilationists (constitutionist (good) + isolationist (BAD) ) need to have a chat with Ronnie to update his foreign policy ... don't think the founding fathers had a facebook acct back then and didn't have the ability to fly a nuke over land.

SLIMY NEWT

Every time my posts get deleted on one of these FAKE GOP sites, I publish it 10 times over to expose what a fraud you are.

Just keep doing it "publicpolicypolling". You look REAL smart.


NEWT GRINGRICH, the DRAFT DODGING DEAD BEAT DAD that DUMPED his DYING WIFE....

stevereenie

I've been saying this for a week now. Romney has pretty much the support he is going to get. Most the rese (execpt Paul) are flavor of the month candidates with the conservative voters circulating. It looks to me that Gingrich will secure most of these as the alphabet candidates fade and eventually pull.

JeddMcHead

Newt and Herman, 2012 -- the DREAM TEAM!

Greg Slipsky

I had sex with Newt

RKnott, HRKnott37@gmail.com

Who can criticize Cain for his indiscretions - who has more indiscretions than Bill Clinton - has everyone forgotten?>?

Jim Goff

If some of the press would write it like it really is many would understand, Ok several million of us bolted the Democrat party because the radical little splinter groups that had 1 or 2 percent of the vote banded together and took over the democrat party. We did not really like the Republican party but to join them was better than a 3rd party.I don't think the Republican party was known as a conservative party before the right wing of the democrat party joined with the Republicans. The only reason they elected a Republican in the 1950's their man was IKE. I stayed with the democrats till Johnson. By the way I will be 76 this year, and for sure it makes a grown man cry to see what is happening to my country. Jim

SLIMY NEWT

"Can you RON PAULSIES please leave the board. You bore me."

Why?

Because you are nothing more than a loser that can't handle the fact that your savior NEWT is a draft dodging, war mongering SCUM that dumped his wife and Ron Paul is a military HERO that has NEVER cheated on his wife and delivers babies while NEWT want them Aborted?

I'm glad we bore you, and I would never want to spend time with you either...

Tommy

lmfao!!

Fred Allen Barton Sr

I was just looking a picture a while ago that hangs in my study of Newt & myself. I was wondering to myself when Newt was going to make his run & take the lead. It would be a great thing to see Newt win the momination & have those debates with Obama that he talks about!! Good luck, Newt!!

Jethro

Bullshit.
Unless it's Ron Paul then the NWO wins!

Milt

Newt's policies (including those during his 2008 presidential consideration) include allowing more illegal immigrants to work in this country. Fantastic news for our Mexican neighbors! I'm surprised at how liberal Gingrich is!

SLIMY NEWT

We laugh at your fake polls.

Ron Paul 2012

Tommy

THRIVE! WATCH THIS DOCUMENTARY!!! IT WILL ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT LIFE AND HOW WE GOT TO THIS POINT! AND WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO CHANGE THIS! THRIVEMOVEMENT.COM ! RON PAUL 2012!!! END THE FED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Susan

I'm seeing a pattern here. the media is going after whoever is top in the polls one by one leaving Romney alone. so that in the end, if he is the only one standing, they will go after him with guns blazing trying to leave Obama looking like an angel. Don't listen to it, they are doing it on purpose. Newt is smarts to get us out of this economic mess, has experience, and i feel will make america look good again, and he will also back down the terrorist countries. He will NOT apologize for our country like Obama. Gingrich/Rubio 2012

Paul

Gingrich will defeat Obama in this political war; it is that simple.

Dan Smith

@ Obama 2012. Nice reverse psychology. You know obama will get the public humiliation of his life in a debate with Gingrich. I predict the first tears in a presidential debate. After the first debate, I expect the DNC to do all they can to perpetually postpone other debates.

All the closet trash the DNC can muster up will simply be negated in a debate with Gingrich. It will be the most memorable debate since Kennedy/Nixon.

If the skirt chasing Clinton can be president, certainly Gingrich is not disqualified.

ForJustice

Newt, like most of the other puppets, wants to take us to war with Iran. Yey another war! Just what we need! Let's destabilize the entire region and start WW3! When did the republican party become almost 100% warmongers? Good brainwashing I guess.

Doug Lynn

Some say Newt is a RINO. I don't know if that is true. Government spending grew slower when he was Speaker than at any time in the last 30 years. I went to smartselect.com and was surprised that my top two choices where Newt and Ron Paul. I certainly do not like his past moral failures, but then Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin had their failures too.

Jake Gaeta

Newt can choose McCain as his VP and they can hold hands and dance like RINO's while singing, "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Bomb, Iran." Then we can really get this economy cooking!

Robin

Newt is not electable, Cain is. They both said in the sit-down debate between the two of them that they were the ticket. Cain would have Newt for good solid foreign advise and we would have Cain turn the economy around. What are you guys thinking? Do you really believe this stuff against Cain. If all it takes is a few unfounded allegations about a candidate to derail his candidacy then all the dems have to do is to throw some money around and come up with someone to make vague allegation about whichever candidate we do choose. Throw in a couple of doctored photos and O is back in the WH. Of course Cain is not going to know all the ends and outs of American foreign policy for the last 40 years no one but a career politician, like Newt, would know all that. If that is the criteria then only politicians are eligible for the presidency and don't tell me Mitt is not a politician. Presidents are briefed daily and have access to information that the normal American doesn't (and shouldn't) have. Cain is a smart man, he will do a great job with a lot of common sense.

IntelligentTool

Electability shouldn't be a factor in deciding who you want to be president. The person with the best ideas and solutions should be president. Who cares if you think he won't get elected or not? It's a self-fulfilling prophecy if you think this way. Just change the way you think. Don't pay attention to what other people try to make you think; if you do, then you're just throwing your vote away. Think for yourself, question authority.

newjerseybt

Since Gingrich has cheated on his wife or two (his affairs) why should we trust him (Gingrich) to keep his word on anything?

clothos

By the time we get to November, 2012, Gingrich will have DESTROYED Obama's rhetoric and will be elected the next president of the U.S.

Any debate between him and Obama will be like William F. Buckley against Jessee Jackson. But both Jackson AND Obama will think they've been winning.

John

Newt Gingrich? Really people? You want that slimey prick of a man in who resembles the reptile name he shares? The same man that wants to give anyone caught with more than 4 grams of any substance EXECUTED? Ron Paul is the only one up there not talking bollocks. Republicans this is why you will never EVER lead this nation again, your foolish, arrogant, and disorganized. Obama will walk over every candidate here (except ron paul had he ever gotten some media attention) as much as i hate to say that. No wonder your votes got us into this foolish place 8+ years ago. Not to say Obama has been ANY help because he hasn't. Get real, it's pathetic how LITTLE of a chance all the people that the media seems to sell your way have in this race. Figure it out.

dean rogers

The polls are rigged. When the polls are not rigged, Ron Paul wins and the establishment whines that Ron Paul supporters are too organized and ardent. I will not support: Romney, Cain, Bachmann, Gingrich, Perry. As of now, it is Ron Paul or nothing. And by nothing I mean that I will write in Ron Paul's name if he is not on the ballot. The GOP needs to WAKE THE F UP. I am not supporting any more GOP candidates that are FOR SALE. Ron Paul 2012!

ben

Newt is a smart dude, thats for sure. It comes through in his public appearances, but so does a smug mean spirited-ness that he needs to tone down a bit, I think, if he is to capture the presidency. Americans have always been suckers for optimism and likable fella's and Newt comes off as the guy who you don;t want to say the wrong thing in front of lest he calls you an idiot in front of your friends... Not sure people will want to see him on TV all day everyday giving liberals the verbal middle finger every day (as cool as that may sound to some)... just a thought.

no mo messiah

newt will slay the messiah, but then again so would ANY of the GOP hopefuls. as long as we get rid of the messiah, I'm ok with any of them.

Bill

Your kidding right? This guy wants to get RID of free speech!?!? Republicans better find someone else or VOTE RON PAUL 2012

STRAIGHT TALK HAWK

NEWT IS NEEEEEEWT WORLD ORDER! Newt went all out for Al "Never Give a Sucker an Even Break" Gorgasm's global ______ (fill in the blank based on the day's weather)hoax, and he supports the criminal carbon tax scheme to make globalist hoaxers rich at American taxpayer and energy supply expense, while the Chinese and Indian governments correctly tell them where to go. Newt is just another RINO-REPUBLICAN'T establishment sellout. The mainlining media (strung out on Obama Keenyatta's secular socialist destruction of the country) is just building him up before they do a 24/7 character assasination on him. That will leave the media, Deemocrat crossover raiders, and illegal aliens free to throw the primaries in New Hampshire and Florida to the weakest "Republican" candidate, RomneyRino, just like they did with that pathetic halfwit RINO Johnny "Dang Fence" McAmnesty, almost John Francois Kerry's VP in 2004. Republican'ts, why do you insist on having the media and Deemocrats choose your candidate for you? GIVE US ANOTHER REAGAN, OR GIVE US THE DEATH OF THE REPUBLICAN'T PARTY!

Lu Shissler

Gingrich needs to explain his remarks regarding Pastor Hagee's church in San Antonio TX being a cult. What does he base that on? Mr Gingrich, please give me your definition of a cult.

Steve Johnson

Frankly, Newt Gingrich is the best by far of anyone on either side of the aisle. My memory is long and detailed and I don't give a damn about the skeletons in his closet. They are irrelevant. What IS relevant is what he's saying and doing today, and it's exactly what we need our president to be saying and doing. Go Newt, I'm with you all the way!

Jim

How sad. He did nothing as Speaker of the House to cut this obscene level of spending when the Republicans had control. Instead they increased spending to record levels. He's also a member of the radical Council on Foreign Relations which is the unelected elite who really run the country.

clothos

Too much baggage? Let's see.......... Gingrich had an affair that destroyed his marriage. Obama has an ongoing affair that's destroying this country........
Yep - that's baggage, all right.

Allen

Gingrich will DESTROY Obama in a head to head match up. From a debate perspective, it wouldn't even be fair. Newt has instant recall of facts, and Obama can't survive without his teleprompters. GO NEWT!!!!

EweDaMan

meh. Thought this was about Cam Newton :)

Ciuba Abdul

The polls are highly deceptive. The next election could be as big of a sham as the last. Do you know why Sarah Palin's bus tour was really canceled? Know what leaked out? Do you know why she stayed 30 miles away from the second debate and chose the death of Steve Jobs to announce that she's not running? She's dodging the media now because of this

It is sad how many are fooled by Newt's "conservative" record. He's not a conservative, he's a politician who changes his course according to popular opinion. Furthermore, you all need to take your heads out of the sand - a smooth talker doesn't equal a smart man. This love for Newt is just as bad as Obama's blithering fools who thought he was so smart last time around.

Check out this article for a short picture of who Newt really is:

If Newt was so great why didnt he do any of this when he was speaker of the house. Ron Paul wanted to make changes a long time ago. Wake up people

Neil Baker

Gingrich is a Zionist and, therefore, a traitor.
So is Romney.
In fact, both have been fighting to prove themselves the biggest Zionist and the one most likely to assist Israel in attacking Iran.
The United States is Zionist Controlled.
911 was a Zionist job.
Iraq and Afghanistan have been wars for Israel.
Americans are slaves; Israel is the master.
Traitors rule.

Michael A. King

I think it's important to remember the power of the purse, and when it was in Newts hand and the U. S. Congress it created the comments by then President Bill Clinton, "What to know we have a surplus" which also brings to memory the Ronald Reagan the great's era that, "America's best days are still yet ahead" and then He charged forth with the all the things No Government ever wants to do. To his discredit he did allow the government to grow, in cooperation with Speaker O'neil. But, which also gave them enough rope to hang themselve's in the Post Office and check kiting scandle. Pretty estute gamesmenship for a bunch of so called "Dumbasses"

...while the GOP and its fickle, angry white voters reel and lurch wildly from one failed, flawed candidate to the next flavor of the month. Bring on the next womanizing blowhard.

JoeTheFilmmaker

This is how it is now. Cain was the guy. But look what they do to you... The media didn't allow it. The American people followed the stories like lemmings, and we'll get a GOP candidate based solely on whoever the Media allows to be nominated.

The media did not want Cain, and they got their wish. So now they will take anyone who is not rogue, eliminating Bachmann, Santorum, and Paul. So that leaves us with establishment politicians AGAIN!

If Newt or Romney runs, I VOTE OBAMA!!!! I've had it. I've really had it. If I'm gonna starve in despotism, I want to at least see the shoe I am eating. The GOP establishment will dress up the shoe and call it steak. So they make me not only hungry, but stupid.

At this point, I'd rather see the country fall than to see these two parties continue their mental abuse on the public. And I cannot be any more serious.

JoeTheFilmmaker

"OMG! Gingrich was in single digits several days ago, then came the stories "Gingrich Surges" (up to double digits) and within another 24 hours, and NOW; "Gingrich takes the Lead."

2008. Romney and McCain. McCain was 3%, and out of nowhere he projected to the top. This is politics. The people did not push Newt up there. That is the establishment playing the same old tricks on the people.

Again, the same exact scenario happened with Romney/McCain in 2008 in the primaries. That ain't a coincidence, and nor is the forgetfulness of the American People.

Rose

Newt is garbage. He is exactly like McCain. I watched that man on an ENTIRE episode of Hannity and Colmes as he sat and laughed and laughed and laughed about the need for Sean to get Pragmatic about the open Southern Border, and the NEED to sign McCain's Shamnesty bill ASAP. I watched him laughing at Sean's distress over Newt's future aspirations as Newt sat in total and complete agreement with Alan Colmes, Newt laughing for no less than 45 - forty-five MINUTES.

The GOP loves these Marxist losers as much as the Dim Party loves Marxist losers.

Tom

No...Newt...NO!!!
I'm from GA and he couldn't even win the straw poll there.
RINO...Very smart but definitly not what is needed in the Whitehouse.

Polls are garbage... no reflection of reality, just what the polster wants it to be.

Participate in the process,Vote and Volenteer, get your voice heard and ignore the polls.

isukusa

Stop listening to the main stream media folks, they are just as much the enemy as BHO. All the candidates have issues; we're human. I plan to vote for whoever is the nominee. Stop allowing the media to separate us and tear ourselves and our candidates apart. You are playing into their hands when you listen to them; turn them off and don't buy products from their advertisers.

Fake Ear

Ron Paul is the real leader in all the polls among thinking and informed people.

Tony

Gingrich is an experienced political leader, intellectual and historian. Although he doesn't quite fit the Hollywood profile the left seem to admire, he is very analytical in researching historical solutions for present day issues. This approach is what's painfully missing from the present administration who operates by repeating solutions that have a history of failure. He, along with Cain or Romney, would be a good fit while Christie and Rubio refine their political gravitas for 2016. Remember that the economy and Iran are issues that are not well suited for a superficial community organizer.

Mitch Mucullen

If this is all they can offer, well yes by a clear window Obama is better. Republicanism needs more of today not more of ice cream jerks. I you think your party is fresh and new your old and Newt.

The Burren

I'm really curious why there isn't a more widespread outcry by you GOP-ers (who don't already support Ron Paul) about the way he is being treated during debates (not just this most recent one), in the national print media, and on TV...Including "fair and balanced" shows like Billy O's.Ron Paul has won or placed in multiple straw polls (ie. CPAC 2 years in a row)as well as in many respected national polls. Dr. Paul has gotten more donations from military than all other GOP candidates combined. He has never pandered to
special interests, he is a war veteran, he has delivered over 4000 babies in private practice, he has been elected 12 times, he has put forth the only real budget deficit reduction plan with 1 trillion dollars in cuts his first year, he has strong support among lifelong republicans such as myself, he has a large,
informed, energized base, an incredible message of free market capitalism and prosperity, an existing infrastructure in all 50 states that will allow him to actually win the nomination (sorry Newt).. and all this is IN SPITE of him getting absolutely no coverage nationally, having positions co-opted or distorted, and being blacked out of almost all reporting. But you might want to consider a few things as you sit at your computers planning your victory party over Obama...
1. At the debate in Spartanburg, there were no less than 200 well-informed Ron Paul supporters, 2 Herman Cain supporters, and no Romney or Perry supporters. There were even a few Obama supporters, but no one for Newt, Bachmann, Romney,Perry, or Santorum.
2. Ron Paul's revenue generating machine is second to none. He has raised the third most money (soon to be #2 as he overtakes Perry) and he hasn't even gotten started yet. Rememember, Ron Paul still holds title to most money raised in a day, and (85%) of his donors haven't exhausted their donation limit, versus Romney (the money leader with 32 million) where 61% has maxed out.
3. Ron Paul is a lifelong Republican, as is most of his base. However, because of how he has been lied about, shut out of debates, and ignored by the MSM, there is little chance any of the top three candidates will get our votes.
4. The GOP cannot and will not win against Obama in 2012 without Ron Paul. So the GOP has a problem. The hopes that a defeat at SCOTUS re: Obamascare will have enough of a deflationary effect to push Romney over the top in the general election is risky at BEST, and whoever
thinks this can happen probably failed math, but its possible.

FACT: Ron Paul's supporters, who have made clear they will not support Romney when he gets the nomination, most of them registered republicans, active military and law enforcement, college students, the Evangelical right, and 20-somethings, are needed statistically in order to defeat Barack Obama in 2012.
So considering #3 and #4, assuming for the sake of this discussion that I'm right, what I'm hearing is that you all hate Ron Paul SO much, that you are willing to give a second term to Obama, presumably to then cry foul when Ron Paul gets 20 million write-in votes. Do I have that correct? Ron Paul, a Medical Doctor who in addition to serving 12 terms in Congress, has delivered FOUR THOUSAND babies, served his country, raised 5 children (with his wife of 53 years), and is best described as an incredibly intelligent,unimpeachable, hard-working, humble man of honesty, intelligence, integrity, and dignity.

I'll say that I believe it's a bold-faced lie that Ron Paul is unelectable like Bill OReill and Donald Trump say, and I'm certainly not going to sit back and yell "Give me Barabbas!" when a TRUE Statesman is offering his services to lead my country.

Newt was endearing to me, from the beginning, because he calls out the media for their obvious bias (Scott Pelley, anybody? That guy could not hide his condescension for the life of him and it was both disgusting and encouraging to watch).

I am an Anti-Corporate Constitutional Conservative Libertarian and so my ideology reflects closest to Ron Paul, but Ron Paul will more than likely not be President for many reasons. I've had several ideas on how to change the Government to shrink the Federal Government and grant more, unilateral power to the individual States- this is where Newt is. Newt has some great ideas in the Twenty-First Century Contract with America (www.newt.org) and it even discusses issues such as Activist Judges and what we can do to reign it in.

However, as a person that also would like to show a referendum on the media (it's true and it must be said) as well as the media's candidates, I can't help but pass on this tidbit of information: Gary Johnson is barely in polls; he is not even included in the polls at all most of the time. When they ask who a Person would like to see as President, the MSM is not even giving Gary Johnson as an option. It's important to note this, because he hasn't been invited to debates because he "isn't polling high enough." How can one poll high enough when they aren't even an option for the poll? The Media, I've concluded, must be very afraid of him, as they aren't even giving him a voice or acknowledging he is running. WHY? I have listened to him and he speaks no less rationally than any other Candidate and he has been a Governor. So Why is he being so totally ignored?

I really enjoy Newt; he has great ideas and his rebuking of the media is thoroughly entertaining, but I'm beginning to wonder if Gary Johnson is being ignored for reasons that are detrimental to the American People. If you question the media, or the media's bias, or the media's influence AT ALL, please go give a serious look to Gary Johnson. I'm requesting that he have a petition available online for people to sign to Demand he be included in the next Debate. I will also be contacting Newt and requesting that they Debate each other. I need to know why Candidates are being treated so obviously unequally and what, in their message, is requiring the media to respond so disdainfully.

Warmest Regards,

NEWT GINGRICH with HERMAN CAIN as V.P. ? obummer would never agree to a debate with GINGRICH...but he would be forced to wouldn't he? That would be a debate to record for posterity .... Maybe a sit down like NEWT and HERMAN did .... ha ... It will NEVER happen if odumbo has any way out.

reddog1

Give Newt an honest chance. He is a true conservative and way smarter than those idiots in congress today. He gets things done! Now they will try to smear him. The reason the media have picked Romney for us is that he is plan B. That is, they want PBO first but if they can't get him relected then Romney is close enough. He is no conservative. Open your minds and give Newt a look.

Dr. Alan Smith

Sadly there is only one Presidential candidate who can recover this country, but unfortunately he is not a media favorite, so stands no chance of being elected, Ron Paul

M. A. Harrill

Go Newt, Who says Obama will be the democratic nominee. Don't forget Hillary.

j c hope

Okay, listen people....we've had three years of the Obama socialist/marxist experiment.....how on earth could Gingrinch be worse???? Clinton has much worse "baggage" than Gingrinch, so shutup about that....he is the only one who could debate Obama off the stage....the only one who has a clear grasp of world geopolitical views that are needed in this age...I for one would vote for a potted plant if it ran against Obama, just to get rid of of him and his henchmen...but Gingrinch is a godsend.

iekoom

If Newt were the candidate, that would mean life is fair. He is definitely the most learned, intelligent and deserving candidate. He could run policy circles around any politician out there in any party.
Unfortunately, life is not fair. And our next president, like our current one, will not be the most-deserving.

Thomas

JFK had baggage,MLK had baggage too.They slept with more sluts than a rock star,but their names are plastered on building and schools across this country.Streets have been renamed Obama Blv,new schools already have this guys name on it! What has this clown accomplished? Hell yes I'll take Newt,he makes these mental midgets squirm in their seats!

scott harper

the congressional republicans have let themselves be rope-a-doped by Obama/Obama media on jobs.Obama is the media darling,made no significant foreign-policy blunders.He will win this election because because there is no republican superstar running...suck it up 4 more years,team,and maybe Rubio,Christy,or Jindal will emerge in 2016.

HAMLET

All of you who think Newt has baggage that cannot be ignored I would normally agree, if it were any other election. This is a defining moment in our nation's history; perhaps the most important election in our lifetime. America's fortunes, recovery, identity as a nation all hang in the balance. On the one hand, you have a street-radical, apologist and socialist bent on turning this country into Europe, and on the other hand you have a seasoned statesman/historian with a powerful gift of oratory... and a man with solutions.

This is not the time for Americans to be derailed by petty thoughts of "cheating" or callous behavior. We need a wartime consilieri in the WH. A man who will stand up to terrorism. A man who understands the principles of liberty. A man who will follow the constitution. Look past the Hollywood smutmongers hype... and vote for the only man who can save America in her darkest hour. NEWT GINGRICH.

j c hope

I'm going to explain this one more time so that even you people can understand it...if we are divided and "sit out another election", then we deserve what we will get...another four years of the socialist regime that is in power now...and we we will have no one to blame but ourselves....we must vote en masse for WHOEVER THE GOP NOMINEE may be if we are to survive as America....even if it isn't YOUR candidate. Four more years of this and America is done...we will be socialized, nationionalize and communized to death...and we will have done it to ourselves because we let our petty differences divide us for the election of 2012.

truelaw

Yes....Gingrich ~ West 2012

Terry

Another useless poll. These polls just do not mean anything at this stage. Few real voters are paying attention right now.

Robert

As a Mitt supporter, I do have to say that Newt is the SMARTEST man in the room.

And a PATRIOT too boot.

Tommy

thrivemovement.com do your research! end the fed !

 mjb

Would you like to run for president and have people attack you daily. At least we have people trying to run. Of our choices, the better choice is NEWT. He has been there, has the most experience and he, like the rest of the world has learned from mistakes. He does admit the wrongs and he compliments others and stays positive. There is enough negativity in this world. The last three years proves that.
So Let us who want Newt have our say. I do not bash your candidate.

Robert

In a debate with the President, Newt would mop the floor with Obummer's face.

Newt is very knowledgable and knows what he is talking about.

Imagine a Newt-Paul or a Newt-Romney ticket. Unbeatable.

Joe

Ah yes and now to The Newt! Gonna be a hard one to sell to the general public once his past comes out. Granted I think he's fairly intelligent and I'd love to see an intellectual spar between him and Obama (finally an actual debate between two people who actually have a brain).

Newt has this against him as well. He comes off as a know-it-all. Plus his style is very condescending. Trust me, unless he brushes up on this he wont last long in the polls.

Ralph

I'm not going to vote for anyone but Cain this election. If Cain's not on the ballot, I'll cast all votes except President. I'm SICK TO DEATH for voting for slobs because I have no other choice.

NurseSnow

I'd support any candidate against Barry, but would pay to see Newt and he debate.

After listening to Obama stutter, stammer and speak from Hawaii yesterday with his references to "here in Asia," Newt would clean his clock in a simple geography bee. Does he really think our "57th state" of Hawaii is part of Asia?
